Whenever men figure out that I drive a manual, they either seem really impressed or really blown away by the thought. Is it really that uncommon for women to be able to drive a stick shift? Men and women alike, how many of you know how? Im curious now.

If a man didn't know how to drive a manual, he wouldn't even get so much as the time of day from me. Serious.
He doesn't have to have a manual as his daily driver... but, when he sits in one, he's gotta be able to grip it and rip it, without lurching or grinding gears. With me, this is non-negotiable.
See... I had a single father, and I spent practically every free moment of my childhood on the floor of his auto shop. I started welding together ratrod bodies when I was 12, and my daddy "treated" my depressive insomnia by taking me out in a 'rod to illegal beater tracks in the desert, starting when I was 13 or 14.
I don't need a man who's as much of a car freak as I am, but... yeahhh lol.
For what it's worth, this is absolutely THE ONLY way in which I am even the least bit "old-fashioned". (I'm taller than my husband, make several times his income, and don't give a rat's ass about either of those things.)
I guess everyone's gotta have somethin'... Take it or leave it. LOL.
Fun fact: Stick-shift cars are almost never stolen. (The little shits probably can't even get 'em out of neutral!)1
